I tried to organize the space as cozy and functional as possible
As you mentioned about your trips, i designed your entrance hall as a decorative partition so you would put any element that reminds your trips and i call it "Memories Hallway".
Also it seems that a 6person table would be bulky, so i designed a fixed seating, then you can align the table to the wall and have more visual space in the living room.
Feel free to ask me any other more details about your project and more renders will be available with no extra cost.
Hope you like it :)
